Crepe Bar Birthday Party

Last month was my mom’s birthday! She and my dad are living here right now, and it’s the first time we’ve been close for her birthday since I was in high school, so it seemed like the perfect time to throw a Surprise party!


Because it’s UTAH, it’s a small world and we all know lots of people here. She has a sampling of friends from like every age and stage of our lives living here so my sister and I invited all the ones we could find.


When we were talking about the food we really quickly decided on a crepe bar!  And then we picked our color scheme (Brown, tan, cream, burgundy!) and everything fell into place!!!  I’m sharing half the recipes on my blog (scroll down) and the other half are on Chelsea’s Crepe Party Post


My mom’s favorite is my flourless chocolate cake so I made that for her, dressing it up with stabilized whipped cream and black berries.


We made three crepe flavors, plain, cinnamon and chocolate!!! (the chocolate recipe is below, my plain crepe recipe is here on this post and my sisters plain and cinnamon is here on Chelsea’s post)


For the fillings we had a sweet cream cheese, a TART sour cream/cream cheese and a lemon sour cream filling.  For toppings we have the buttermilk syrup, my hot fudge and my berry coulis! (The tart filling, the sweet filling and lemon fillings are on Chelsea’s post, the buttermilk Syrup, or Chelsea’s post.  The hot fudge and Berry coulis)


I made stabilized whipped cream, so it could be left out during the party and not  all melty… and three berry filling options, strawberries, mixed berries and bananas (bleck).


For those who really love it rich we had vanilla ice cream (also it’s good on the cake!) I printed off two full sheets, pressed them around the container and cut it to fit.


Wash it all down with milk… (we had water too of course).  I LOVE my sisters cake plate… I need one (anyone know where I can find something similar?)


We had to create some samples to show off for you guys!  Chocolate with tart sour cream/cream cheese, strawberries, coulis and whipped cream… Mmmmmm


Cinnamon crepes with sweet cream cheese filling, banana’s and strawberries, hot fudge and whipped cream (I picked around the banana’s- Ewwww)


Plain crepes with lemon filling, mixed berries, buttermilk syrup and more whipped cream!  So so SOOO good!


I am SOOO in love with how the whole table turned out!  Here is a PDF of the labels if your interested in throwing your own party!


Chocolate Crepes
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
  • 3 C milk
  • 6 eggs
  • 4 Tbsp butter melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 C flour
  • 3/4 C Cocoa powder
  • 3/4 C chocolate (not chips- bars, semi sweet baking, etc...)
  • 4 Tbsp sugar
  • pinch of salt
  1. Put everything into a blender and mix until smooth.  Refrigerate the batter for an hour to let the bubbles settle and the batter with thicken a bit (I refrigerated mine overnight and it got TOO thick, if that happens to you thin it down with more milk or water to get the texture right).
  2. heat a large flat skillet on med high and once it's hot  pout 3-4 Tbsp of batter, QUICKLY tilt the pan in a circle to cover the bottom.  I cook it for about 40 seconds on each side.  Use a spatula to loosen the edge and flip the crepe.  It depends on how hot your pan is.  I LIKE it cooking fast, I can get through the batch faster that way...
  3. serve right away, or let the crepes cool, stack, refrigerate and serve the next day!

      It’s nice because you can make all of it ahead of time too! I like that alot, it’s nice for a group to serve themselves this way too.

      Thanks Jan! I am still tickled that we totally surprised her so well! She is still tickled weeks later, doing something that touched her so much was totally worth it!

      I let them cool completely before I stack them so they don’t stick together. I’ve always eaten them cool, never warm, it’s a preferance thing I think!

    This is a LOVELY IDEA. I’m throwing a bridal shower for my cousin and it’s a brunch. This could be just the perfect thing! Do you know how many crepes each recipe makes?

  3. says

    So glad I found your blog through Pinterest! I am planning a bridal shower for a friend in June and we want to do a crepe bar as well! Great idea! As far as finding a cake stand, have you tried TJ Maxx, or Homegoods? I always find them there :)

    Hi! everything looks great and super yummy! I´d like to know how can I store the crepes if I made them beforehand as you suggested in a comment. Should they be wam when served? Thank you!!

      I don’t warm them to serve them. I let them cool then stack them on a plate and cover with plastic wrap or shove into a gallon sized bag. I just take them out and serve them like that.
